Best v nickel yet

Another hunt at my favorite 1800s park gets me my nicest V nickel yet...1900 and in decent shape. Usually v's are close to unreadable out of my local soil. This one looks decent. Any tips on best way to shake off the remaining crud are appreciated.

Heat some drug store hydrogen peroxide in the microwave until its very warm, not hot, let it soak overnight. Brush lightly under a faucet with a toothbrush the next day.

My latest technique is put 4 crusty Indian Head Pennies in an ice cube tray in distilled water. I then put them in the freezer until frozen very solid, take them out, let thaw and repeat. Every time I repeat the process it knocks a little more of the crud off! PATIENCE is my biggest problem! I've ruined numerous coins because I wanted them to look clean today, which ended up making them look worse than when I dug them up! LOL Good Luck!
